Political wackos


Thank you, Tea Party candidates, for showing us your crazy well ahead of election day. Angle in Arizona calls Latino kids Asian (just the latest in a string of gaffes - where were those headless corpses in the desert, exactly?), O'Donnell in Delaware doesn't know what the First Amendment says (also the latest in a crazy series - witch, anyone?), Paladino in New York is a flat-out right-wing nutjob, and Paul in Kentucky is exactly the looney-toons I thought he was. For the first time I think since I started voting, I'm doing my research and voting in the mid-terms this year to do my part in keeping these idiots out of office.

STOP RAINING ON MY OPTIMISM!

But, yes, you're right - they'll always have core supporters. I'm just hoping they'll be just crazy enough to (a) drive a wedge between them at the rest of the GOP to cause enough of a fracture that it'll split their votes, thereby giving more Democrats wins; and/or (b) they'll drive away moderate Republicans and undecideds into *not* voting for them, thereby giving more Democrats wins.

But, as I said above, since their campaign seems to be, "Vote for us 'cause we're not Republican," I'm not exactly inspired by the Democrats, either. They can do SOOOOO much better than this. :/
